I had a belly laugh yesterday when I charged up my old iPhone and looked through the notes section. I used to keep a running list of future dog names and the last entry was added 331 days ago at 11:35am. “Jam”. On Tuesday, February 25, 2014 I thought JAM was a good name for a dog and that helps me realize that being a little lost in life right now is not as final as it feels. Because a year ago I was a girl who wanted to name a dog Jam.
I’ve been reading Still Writing and have been so inspired to write a novel. While I was falling asleep the other night I had to keep sitting up to jot down ideas as they popped in to my snoozy brain. I think I may have come up with the beginning paragraph and the rest of the book would play out as sort of an “embellished memoir” full of truths and make-believes. So there’s my millionth dream to bring to fruition, but as a lady on HGTV’s Property Virgins (my favourite show to watch over my morning coffee) said, “dreaming is free”.
Today is the last Tuesday I’ll spend in Saskatoon, indefinitely. Much like these four pictures, the future feels full of uncertainty and that’s not an easy thing to wrap the ol’ brain around.

As one of my long time favorite quotes by William G.T. Shedd says, “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” So I’ll be living by that and bon-voyaging through life if anyone needs me! (..just invented that term. You may use it)
Todays post is to remind you that everything can be a tiny bit magnificent (do you ever say a word in your mind so many times that it stops sounding like an actual word? I just did that). The collar bone is … Continue reading →
The most glamorous part of my day might be sitting cross legged in my chair at my desk with a giant bun on top of my head (and jammin’ to this)- but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream! If anyone needs me, … Continue reading →
I remember being about 8 years old and outrageously jealous when my sister(left) got the most beautiful cloud print floor length dress. Even more so, I remember the day she grew out of it and it was finally my time to shine … Continue reading →
I’m not one of those people who is consistently dying to travel. I really love being home, I like routines and being relaxed. But every once in a while I get the impulsive urge to book a trip and jet … Continue reading →
